Traditional drawing of Jensen Ackles. Finally I started watching the tv series "Supernatural" (I finished season 2) and it's great so far. I really like the character "Dean" (played by Jensen Ackles), because he's funny, so I decided to draw him. But it's a bit strange for me, because a few days ago I noticed that I had a poster of him on my wall ~13 years ago (I totally forgot that he was in "Dark Angel", too)... ^^;
At first I thought it would be more difficult to draw the water, but in the end it was fun. The most difficult part was the likeness and the "paper" (I'm still saving my last sheets and looking for a replacement for my favourite drawing paper, but maybe I should've used the good paper for this drawing instead of the grainier no name paper).

Reference was a picture from a photoshoot (Michael Muller 2006?).

Paper DIN A4 190g/m²; Faber-Castell Polychromos artists' colour pencils, Copic Ciao and Sketch marker, uni-ball Signo pigment ink um-153 white; time: ~20 hours

How do you do water like that? I'm terrible at drawing water and I have no clue how to do it.

Thanks! Well, I just try to draw what I see. It's difficult to explain, but for water: Contrast is very important and I did some of the white parts with a white gel pen. This also helps a lot.
